Director 



i61f\nd Cons( tory o/' Music 



Previous to the year 1897, the vioHn students of the Conservatory had practised, in 
a class, music for string orchestra under the direction of their teachers and occasionally 
concerts had been given of such music. When the present Director assumed his duties in 
1 897, these classes were consolidated under his own direction, and used in combination with 
the organ, which supplied the wind parts. The organ students were instructed in reading 
and playing from the orchestral score, and the orchestra, in this rudimentary form, was 
used to accompany the simpler concertos and arias. 

The next year, 1 898, the chorus was added, and among other things Rossini's 
"Stabat Mater" was given, accompanied by the strmgs and organ. The rehearsals were 
held in the small hall of the old Conservatory building and created so much interest among 
the students that the Director began to have applications from wind-instrument players who 
desired to join the orchestra. In 1 899, a canvass among the students of the school devel- 
oped fairly efficient players of the flute, clarinet, cornet, and trombone. Professional oboe 
and bassoon players were engaged, but the organ was still used for the missmg horn parts. 
From this time, interest in the study of wind instruments grew rapidly and students of the 
horn, oboe, bassoon, began to be developed from the clarinet, cornet and pianoforte 
players. 

In 1901 the orchestra had grown to nearly forty members, which was a much larger 
number than could be accommodated on the stage of the hall. The wind players had to 
be seated on the floor or in the gallery. 

It became evident, if the orchestra was to become a permanent factor in the institu- 
tion, that a better place for rehearsals and concerts must be provided. At the first rehearsal 
in October, 1 90 1 , at which the orchestra was complete without the assistance of the organ, 
the Director made a short address in which he expressed the hope that the event might 
prove to be a significant one and that the rehearsal then held would be the first of a series 
which would last as long as the Conservatory existed. At this rehearsal Beethoven's 
Overture to Egmont and Haydn's Symphony in D major were studied. 

On March 2, 1902, the orchestra gave its first public concert as a complete organi- 
zation. The program was as follows: 

Beethoven, Symphony in D major (first movement). 

Reinecke, Concerto in F sharp minor (first movement). 

Mozart, Quintet from Cosi fan tutti. 

Spohr, Concerto in D major (violin). 

Beethoven, Overture to Egmont. 

At the Commencement Concert of June 18, 1902, which was held in Tremont 
Temple, the orchestra played all the accompaniments for the graduates and also the Over- 
ture to "Ruy Bias" by Mendelssohn, and acquitted themselves very creditably. 

With the removal of the Conservatory to the present building, a great increase of 
enthusiasm took place. The inspiring surroundings, the beautiful hall for rehearsals, the 
conveniences of a special library, tuning room, lockers for instruments, etc., all added 
materially to the growth of the orchestra. From this time the orchestra has gradually 
grown in efficiency as well as in numbers. The present members represent the most ad- 
vanced students among the string and wind instruments, and there is a waiting list of 




;icl ^ 



candidates for the vacancies in each department. Three rehearsals a week are held, one 
of which is for wind instruments alone under the direction of Mr. Lenan. 

Students of the Conservatory are encouraged to attend rehearsals, one of which is 
largely devoted to accompaniments. The teachers of the wind instruments attend the 
rehearsals and help the students over peculiar difficulties in their parts. In this way the 
student gains the practical experience and necessary routine as a member of a symphony 
or opera orchestra. Of course the student membership necessarily changes from year to 
year, but most of the players acquire an experience of three or four years before they leave 
the Conservatory. 

The repertoire of the orchestra was at first confined chiefly to the works of the classic 
period, but gradually as the orchestra grew in efficiency more modern works were studied 
and eventually a number of works of this character were performed by the orchestra for 
the first time in Boston. 

The Library of the orchestra now contains more than one thousand sets of parts, in- 
cluding many choral works and some operas. The scores are, for the most part, kept in 
the main Library of the Conservatory, where they may be studied when not in use by the 
orchestra. The Library has been materially augmented by gifts of parts by the Harvard 
Musical Association and the Philharmonic Society, and by individuals, and it is being 
continually enlarged. 

This orchestra reaches the artistic life of the school at every point. In the first place, 
members of the orchestra gain here a routine and experience which fit them for positions in 
the best symphony and opera orchestras of this country and such positions are now being 
filled by our students in the Boston Symphony and other Symphony Orchestras of the 
country. 

Secondly, every student who can sing or play, conduct or compose, may use the 
orchestra as his laboratory, provided such use is warranted by his ability. Students who 
learn score reading and playing are given every opportunity actually to conduct the 
orchestra and are "coached" by the Director at the rehearsals. 

Students of composition may have their work rehearsed and performed if of sufficient 
merit. The privileges are also extended to the students of Harvard University who are 
taking the courses in music and special rehearsals are held from time to time for the purpose 
of illustrating the Harvard Course in Appreciation of Music. The Instrumentation Class 
has its studies demonstrated by the orchestra, where the errors are made evident to the ear 
as well as to the eye. A successful public performance as soloist with the orchestra before 
an audience of genuine music-lovers gives a young student such confidence that future 
engagements of the same kind (no matter how important) need have no terrors for him. 

At the orchestra rehearsals on Tuesday afternoons, to which all students are welcome, 
they not only have the opportunity of listening to many of the finest orchestral masterpieces, 
but are given a continual example of how the artistic details of a composition should be 
studied out and of the infinite pains indispensable to the perfection of technique and 
expression. 

During the past fifteen years upwards of one hundred twenty-five concerts have been 
given, including choral works and operatic performances. Some of these concerts have 
been conducted by students of the conducting class, and in the season of 1 905- 1 906, 
during the absence of the Director in Europe, the orchestra was in charge of Mr. Wallace 
Goodrich. Mr. Arthur Shepherd and Mr. Clement Lenan' have also conducted. With 
these exceptions, all of the concerts have been conducted by Mr. Chadwick.

For Sewing and Knitting two meetmgs were held weekly, in addition to which many articles 
were made by students in their homes from material supplied by the Auxiliary. 

Eight meetings for Surgical Dressings were held weekly, in a room in Frost Hall set 
apart for the purpose by the General Manager. 

Total Receipts to May 10, $1,259.65. Total Disbursements to May 10, $1,1 17.64. 

The above record of work accomplished by the Conservatory Red Cross Auxiliary 
within a few njonths since its organization speaks for itself. It bears testimony to the time

and endeavor so cheerfully devoted to a great Cause, by the students and other workers of 
the Auxiliary; and to the able direction of the Executive Secretary, assisted by the Chair- 
men and members of the Committees, who so wisely planned the scope and the many details 
of the work, and whose devotion and enthusiasm have been a constant source of inspiration 
and encouragement to all the workers and members. 

The funds necessary to carry on the work, all of which were devoted to the purchase 
of material, were derived from several sources: from membership fees, from gifts by 
Trustees and other friends, and from the proceeds of Concerts and other entertainments 
generously given by various student organizations.

Biatoro of tljr ajlaaa nf 1918 



The Class of 1918! Four short words, but back of them all of our lives to date; 
our ambitions, our achievements and sometimes our brief despairs. 

As a class we have followed a certain social formula, established through custom, 
and we have at various times throughout the year, entertained the Juniors and been very 
delightfully entertained in return. Of a necessity such parties are formal at first, but 
young people are too wholesome to remain unfriendly, and from these gatherings has arisen 
a spirit of camaraderie which has gone far to brighten the school years of those of us who 
have left the companionship of home and friends, and come from the North, West and 
the South to study at our Conservatory. 

And it is "our" Conservatory. Even while we claim it for our own, we offer in 
return our loyalty for the tireless efforts and kindnesses of the faculty towards us. Speaking 
for my fellow-classmates, I would here pay tribute to the unfailing interest of Mr. Chad- 
wick and Mr. Goodrich in any of our projects, however small. Without them our road 
would have wound on interminably, but through their enthusiasm, our class has seen 
many movements inaugurated which will endure as monuments of 1918 long after we 
have gone. 

The Conservatory Auxiliary of the Metropolitan Chapter of the Red Cross was 
formed by a student committee, with four of its five members chosen from our class, and 
with most of the sub-committees composed of Seniors. If I seem inordinately proud of 
my colleagues, I have the shining record of the work they have done on all these commit- 
tees to back me in my justifiable vaunts. 

Then again we shared in the glory of the Student Friendship War Fund drive, for 
which, in three days, we raised $1,800.00 exclusively among the students and faculty of 
the Conservatory, to be used to further the comfort of Student Soldiers who are prisoners 
of war. 

All of which brings us to the fact that the elements of our school year — our happi- 
ness in our work, our delight in our music, and our sheer joy in being young together — all 
the harmonies of our present-day lives are woven over the dreary organ point of a world 
at war. The war has come close to us, and I would I had the skill of a fifteenth century 
monk in emblazoning his Scriptures, to set forth fittingly the names of our classmates who 
have gone out to represent us at the front.

All honor to them whose names are written much brighter in our hearts, and may 
we at home be worthy of their trust. 

And now the chronicle of the graduates of 1 9 1 8 is written. Perhaps we have done 
nothing startling, and have been externally even as other classes; but it has been our privi- 
lege to live more intensely in an era of cosmic disorder, and as we have drawn closer 
together, we have built up a stronger school spirit which has spread even into the very 
walls of the building, which will, we hope, shed back some ray of warmth on all the 
classes yet to come.

HISTORY OF THE ASSOCIATION 

At a mass meeting held in Recital Hall in September, 1915, the Young Women's 
Christian Association was organized and a few months later became affiliated with the 
National Board of the Y. W. C. A. of America. 

The Association was made possible largely through the efforts of Miss Katy Boyd 
George, then Metropolitan Secretary for the Boston Student associations. 

By a unanimous vote, Blanche Speer was elected Charter president of the Associa- 
tion for the ensuing year. 

The Association has grown larger each year and is becoming more and more a vital 
factor in the student life of the school.
